Good morning, ladies! It's a beautiful morning here in California...still a bit early, though!

Can't wait to see what you come up with for the vintage challenge today!

LuvLee 10-18-2010 07:56 AM

Oh how beautiful!!! Hmmm...vintage is a bit out of my box....but I think I can! LOL

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 07:57 AM

Of course you can, Lee! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

muzbysmom 10-18-2010 08:01 AM

This thread just opened for me so I'll post quick and can edit this post when I get my card made - this is a hard challenge for me - I have no vintage stamps! I may have some vintage Santa stickers - I'll have to look around!

UnderstandBlue 10-18-2010 08:41 AM

What an incredibly perfect image - with her fingers crossed! Fantastic Julie! I can't wait to play this one - I just got some Crafty Secrets goodies and I need to ink them up!

So glad it's working for you now!

You don't need vintage stamps to do this--just ANYTHING with a vintage feel will do the trick! Just look around at what you have and have some fun with it!

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 08:42 AM

Thanks, Lydia! Can't wait to see what you do!

Wowser, I've never yet been this quick off the mark with a HYCCT challenge :D.

This is the first time that I enter in a challenge in this site and I'm not sure if I'm following correctly the instructions. I just finish my first vintage cards and you can see them in my gallery or follow the links below.

Your cards are absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!! Can't believe you haven't done vintage before, girl! The only thing you need to do is to add the special gallery code to your card name or in the keyword area...so just go into edit for each of your cards and add HYCCT18 and it will put your cards in the correct gallery, okay?

So glad you played with us today!!!

LIM 10-18-2010 10:13 AM

Julie,

Thank you so much for your kind comments about my vintage cards. You are so sweet. :)
I already fixed the codes. Thanks!
Hugs,
LIM :)

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 10:27 AM

Great job! They're in the gallery where they belong...looking all gorgeous!

LIM 10-18-2010 10:32 AM

Thanks! :)

muzbysmom 10-18-2010 11:26 AM

I did get a card made for this challenge! I took a copy of a vintage photo out of a baby instructional book that I found amongst my mother in law's things! Yeah! It can be found here:

I probably have a stupid question............but, I have NO vintage images, lace, buttons.......anything..............But........I do have PTI's set of vintage ornaments. May I make a card using those stamps or would that fall under the "no religious sentiments" rule? I know that the ornaments aren't sentiments......but, I don't want to cross a line or offend anyone.

First of all...there's NEVER a stupid question! If there is, I've already asked them all...twice!

Please make your beautiful card! If it's not okay to send, then you'll have a beautiful Christmas card for someone...I'd love to see your vintage style today--we've had lots of new vintage girls come out to play!

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 02:01 PM

Heather and Terry--your cards are so beautiful! I'm loving getting you ladies out of your comfort zone and into some vintage today--you all need to do it more often--you've really got the knack for it!

UnderstandBlue 10-18-2010 02:07 PM

Agree with everything Julie said and that would be a perfectly fine card to send! It's crazy that you asked that because I'm working on my card for Julie's challenge and it TOTALLY is ornaments!! HA!

Remember, vintage can be a technique too - like this one:

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...r-t507237.html

If you use a pale ink on a vanilla cardstock it gives a gorgeous vintagey look.

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 02:28 PM

Thanks, Lydia--good point on vintage techniques!

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 03:25 PM

I'm off to my two daughters' field hockey games...back in a couple of hours to see all the gorgeous vintage stuff you've made while I've been gone!

LuvLee 10-18-2010 04:44 PM

Ok, I did it! And actually used no stamps.....I don't think it's total immersion Vintage....but not bad for a first attempt I hope!!! LOL

This one was a toughie for me -- my style is definitely NOT vintage. But, for what it's worth, here's my card --

Is This Vintage? I'm not sure, but it IS pink.

pattyb 10-18-2010 07:15 PM

Vintage Stencils? Playing around with my stencils and a different look for me!

Julie Campbell 10-18-2010 07:17 PM

Beautiful job, Patty--loved your vintage style!

Hi, Libby! Loved your card--beautifully done! So glad you took the time to play with us tonight!

I must say this is my 1st time making a vintage card, but I did it. Here it is:

Beautiful job, Connie! So glad you non-vintage girls are playing today--it's fun to do something different, isn't it?! You all have made such beautiful cards!

stamp300 10-18-2010 11:11 PM

Thanks Julie for getting me out of the box. I told my husband, I may have to try this again.

Oh, good! So glad to hear that, Connie! Can't wait to see what you come up with for your next vintage beauty!

When I hear vintage I immediately go to fabrics as I have a bit from my Grandma who lived in the time when you didn't just go to the store for clothing and other sewn goods. She was a quilter, made rag rugs, apparel, you name it. I chose a scrap of adorable fabric from her and a linen hanky for my vintage card: Vintage fabric HYCCT18 by angelsparkly - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Julie Campbell 10-19-2010 07:58 AM

Beautiful card, Margaret! So glad you could play along today!

DawnL 10-19-2010 08:24 AM

here's my vintage
